The unit of individualized learning activities is designed to provide training in grounds maintenance. The materials in the unit are divided into two sections. The developmental or preliminary phase (15 pages) is for use by the instructor and includes brief descriptions of the job and of the student population, along with listings of the specific tasks, course prerequisites, and objectives. The curriculum phase (94 pages), for use by the student, contains directions, objectives, learning activities, pre- and posttests. These two components together form a "job entry", a unit of work which, when completed by the student, insures his training in a designated job skill. Five learning activity packages are provided: (1) selection of grasses for lawns and turfs, (2) establishing lawns and turfs in Florida, (3) controlling insects and diseases of lawns and turfs, (4) care and maintenance of lawns and turfs, and (5) proper use and care of lawn tools and equipment. Suggestions are included to aid the instructor in his role as guide in the individualized instruction format. (NJ)
